comment Spigot broke on primary fermentation bucket
I almost always leave the beer in a primary for 3-4 weeks and skip a secondary. Patience seems to be the best advice.

comment Would it be possible to connect a keg (or series of kegs) to a soda fountain?
All I can really tell you is that I know of someone who tried it and it didn't work well for him. No personal experience to relate.

comment how much air would I need to move to be able to brew in my basement?
I agree. DO NOT use propane tanks indoors. The problem isn't just the CO.

What are you going to be using for "power"? I wouldn't recommend using a propane tank indoors, but there are other options.

comment Is Oxiclean Free OK to use on a metal brewpot
To expand a bit on the previous comment, if the metal is stainless steel, it's fine. If it's aluminum, don't do it.

comment Can I leave the sulphites out of my store bought wine kits
It's been a long time, but IIRC the flavor seemed "flatter", if that makes any sense. Kinda like when you don't salt food.

comment Will bottling by pouring negatively impact the flavor of my beer?
I don't think there's enough fermentation going on in the bottle to consume much oxygen, at least according to info I've come across in the past. Bt of the beer is consumed in the next month or so, I doubt there will be a problem.

comment How long should I condition an IPA?
Yeah, you have a good point. Let me see if I can be a bit more precise...I definitely wouldn't say that a low alcohol beer takes 5 weeks of conditioning, or 7 weeks for a 6.5% beer. Beyond that, though, I fall back on my "taste it a week after packaging" theory and decide from there.
